Corona – Information on how to deal with the pandemic

The guidelines and recommendations on this website apply to all members of the University of Freiburg. The information is continuously being updated.

Besides its Hygiene Regulations and federal and state legislation, since October 2020 the University of Freiburg has followed a phased plan for dealing with coronavirus in its approach to the pandemic. The plan applies to all members of the University of Freiburg and depending on the relevant incidence rate governs various procedures, for example with regard to studies, classes, research and business trips. 

Since 11 June 2021 the University of Freiburg’s phased plan for dealing with coronavirus has been suspended while a new version is developed that can take account not only of the latest relaxation of the rules by the national and state governments but also allowed for any medium-term fluctuations in the incidence rates. Also since 11 June, temporary rules allowing the university to operate under the conditions of the coronavirus pandemic have applied to all members of the University of Freiburg. The current national and Federal State of Baden-Württemberg legislation – in particular the CoronaVO Studienbetrieb dated 30 June – still do not permit a practical and efficient revision of the existing Corona Phased Plan at the university. The temporary rules have therefore only been updated. The aim is for all members of the university to experience the least possible restrictions when working and studying, and at the same time to receive the best possible protection. The updated rules apply with immediate effect (8 July 2021). In addition, the university’s “SARS-CoV-2 Hygiene Regulations” have also been adapted to this.

7-day incidence level: Number of new infections within the past seven days per 100,000 inhabitants in the region and in Baden-Württemberg

The University has set up a coordination office to deal with the effects and consequences of the coronavirus, in which all the competent departments of the central administration are involved. If you have questions that cannot be answered by the information provided on this website, please contact the Coordination Office.
